The basic science and clinical studies carried out by hematology faculty cover a broad range of hematologic malignancies and blood disorders. Clinical investigators in the Division utilize discoveries from laboratories worldwide to develop and test novel therapeutic approaches to improve patient outcomes.
Gentler pre-transplant treatment with antibody
An antibody to a protein on blood-forming stem cells may allow bone marrow transplants without the need for chemotherapy and radiation, according to a Stanford study.
Transplants without tissue-matching?
Researchers’ experimental approach for preparing mice for blood stem cell transplantation may one day make it possible in humans to safely transplant organs or cells from any donor to any recipient.
What sea invertebrate reveals about us
A lowly sea creature may provide a way to understand our own blood-forming system, improve our immune function and find new immune-associated tools for biological discovery, Stanford researchers say.
Bee-made protein keeps stem cells primed
An active protein component of royal jelly helps honeybees create new queens. Stanford researchers have identified a similar protein in mammals, which keeps cultured embryonic stem cells pluripotent.
Adult stem cells channel early development
New research from Stanford shows that skeletal stem cells in mice assume a more primitive developmental state in response to extensive regeneration needs and environmental cues.
